We truly live in an Information Age! This photo was taken at Sweet Arrow Reserve near Bellbrook. I wanted to learn what this purple flower is. Lots of information pops up on the internet when you search “purple black eyed susan flower.” I found that this is a coneflower (Echinacea). Echinacea is a supplement used to “boost” the immune system, and there are numerous studies that show it may or may not have a beneficial effect.
We live in a time when it is relatively easy to find good information on so many different topics. But it is important to remember that there is still only one source of truth.
